    Reds claim Jason Ellison off waivers

    Per team press notes. Guess now we know who Freel's replacement will be. They'll make a roster move tomorrow when Ellison reports.

    I thought we already had this guy, only his name's Norris Hopper?

    How does Jason Ellison help, other than just being a warm body for the bench?

    Keeps them from having to call up Jay Bruce, Dickerson or play Conine and/or Keppinger in the OF.

    Isn't this the guy who was replaced by Adam Jones that got Jose Guillen all bent out of shape?

    I'm thrilled we got this guy, a 29-year-old with a career .663 OPS. But hey, look at that sparkly .283 batting average this year.

    I'm guessing he's another body they can have for the remainder of the season plus he can be in the mix for a bench spot next year.

    He's arbitration eligible at the end of the season. Bonus!

    Injuries plus the current record and the need to keep Conine out of the OF drives this bus, just more bench ballast that doesn't tack service time on prospective prospects.

    Speed? Check. Mediocre average? Check. Dislike of walks? Check. Complete and utter lack of power? Check.

    At least Bowden's thing was for guys with 5 tools. Free talent. Wasted season. Ok, I guess.

    Though with Dickerson hitting .269/.371/.427, don't we already have this guy?
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    I wasn't really sure it was possible to make the team worse.

    By comparison he does make Hopper look good.

    I don't think so.

    If we don't offer arbitration and he goes, there won't be any compensation picks unless he is a type a, b, or c player. And he is not. Only the top 40% of players at a given position qualify for any compensation picks under the latest labor agreement.

    I doubt we want to offer him arbitration anyway....

    See THIS SITE for a summary of the rules.
